This morning I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for a Halloween party we are going to tonight. They are really good - although I like raisins with my pumpkin much better than chocolate. Don't get me wrong... chocolate and I are really, REALLY good friends, but with pumpkin, it's not my favorite.
While baking the cookies, I thought I would share with you my favorite fall oatmeal recipe. When I eat this in the morning.... I stay full for the most part of the day... bonus!
makes 4 servings
Make the oatmeal according to the box recipe (for 4 servings, do not omit the salt!) I also make the oatmeal with 1/2 the liquid water and 1/2 skim milk.
When it is finished cooking on the stove add in:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup sugar (I use in the raw sugar)
Stir together and enjoy!
